Update 1050. Video of 66118 at Stourbridge, 23/04/15

The usual shot, but no worry of being bowled by the southbound train as it had run very early & I missed it. It’s a good job the loco I wanted to see was on the northbound train, otherwise I … Continue reading

Update 1049. Video playlist 56087, 153371 & 170635 at Small Heath, 21/04/15

The 56 video was filmed after my arrival on 153371/170635, but I reversed the order to get a better thumbnail for the playlist. I wasn’t expecting 56087 to run so early, you can actually see it approaching if you watch … Continue reading

I was at Old Hill to film a couple of freights and a railtour, as seen in a previous playlist. To pass the time I filmed some of the units passing, all very uninteresting but the 170s diverted away from … Continue reading

Update 1046. Video of 37059 & 37610 at Rowley Regis, 20/04/15

This is the second week that 6M56 has been booked into the loop. At least this time it was going well as it rounded the curve before cutting power as it approached the station. One problem here is the sun, … Continue reading

After a break of several weeks, good old 6M56 was back again on Monday afternoon. This time it was booked into Rowley loop, so no thrash through the station – just a gentle run past as it had to slowly … Continue reading

It’s not often I see the Round Oak trains anywhere but Stourbridge, but my train was cancelled due to a fatality at Tyseley. There was just time to get back home, then drive to Hagley. Unfortunately the northbound train had … Continue reading

Update 1041. Videos of 2857, 34053, 4566, 43106 & 7812, plus some lambs at Arley, 05/04/15

Easter Sunday and the green timetable, so a frequent train service including the “Limited” diner. If I had been taking photos it wouldn’t have been much fun as all but one shot would have been locos running backwards!

Update 1040. Playlist of 57002 & 57004, then 67008 at Old Hill, 07/04/15

I can’t remember the last time the flask train came this way in the evening, but as it was the first flask train for several weeks it was good to see it. Only 15 minutes to wait for the Chiltern … Continue reading

Bescot – Alexandra Docks Junction, and round the Dark Side! I had no idea what it would be but decided to go & see it. It ran about 10 minutes late & I missed my train back to Old Hill … Continue reading
